Alternative to Metal Braces
The first thing we notice about people we meet is their smile. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to flash your beautiful teeth with confidence? Dr. Reese can help you smile your best smile with Invisalign, an alternative to metal braces. Technologically has made it easier, safer, and more cosmetically appealing to straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, these clear braces can be removed while eating. No more struggling to eat around bulky metal braces or having to wonder what is stuck in your teeth. Clear braces are more comfortable then traditional braces. They fit onto the back of teeth instead of adhering to the fronts of your teeth. Metal braces use a lot of force to align teeth which often causes damage to the teeth and gums. It also makes brushing difficult. With Invisalign braces, one can still be able to brush and floss their teeth with no difficulty. This enhances better dental care and reduces the risk of tooth decay and demineralization which is commonly associated with metal braces.
